Barrett, Margaret S. – Research Studies in Music Education, 2016
Whilst the role of interactive play, thought and language in children's development has been acknowledged, less is known of the role of interactive play, thought and "music." Children's early music-making is both generative and performative in nature and provides a means by which they engage with self and others. Their independent…

Bannan, Nicholas – Australian Journal of Music Education, 2020
